I'm hard pressed to count the CJ10 in with the actual CJ jeeps only because it is in reality an FSJ frame and drive line with a mutated CJ cab and nose stuck on. It would be like trying to slip a FSJ Cherokee onto a scrambler frame and calling it a scrambler.

[SIZE="1"][I][SIZE="2"]These, in the day when heaven was falling, The hour when earth's foundations fled, Followed their mercenary calling, And took their wages, and are dead.
Their shoulders held the sky suspended; They stood, and earth's foundations stay; What God abandoned, these defended, And saved the sum of things for pay.
Jeep markets a military model called the J8 to Egypt. Think AEV Brute but with the heavy duty parts and diesel engine it should have.
The J8 doesn't seem like a "real" pickup to me. It has a side-swinging rear gate like a Wrangler instead of a vertically swinging tailgate like a CJ or a real pickup, and the bed area is part of the passenger compartment just like a Scrambler.
The Gladiator concept is a real pickup:

i saw a really nice conversion of a TuG to a Pickup,,, with the ocean in the background one day, but i cannot find it, it had a bed on it that looked perfect, im thinking of possibly doing this build.... i realize its not exactly a CJ, im just throwing the ideas around,,, i wanna build something Different.... unless Jeep is finally gonna come out with a real Truck with a standard bed that looks Very jeepish.
